Russian disinformation: situation report

Russia is adapting its #propaganda activities to the course of war it’s been waging against #Ukraine. As a country actively engaged in helping Ukraine, Poland is one of the prime targets of Russian information warfare efforts.

The following are some of the identified anti-Polish narratives, including those in use for quite a while and completely new ones.

- Poles are most numerous among the mercenaries fighting alongside Ukraine (a narrative now heavily exploited)
...

- #PL fighters are supporting Russia (an emerging narrative)
- #PL wants to seize UA (old narrative) + granting #UA an #EU candidate status serves this goal (new issue)
- Poland is dragging #NATO into war against Russia
- Poland is steeped in anti-Russian sentiment

ICYMI: @USAmbOSCE Michael Carpenter accuses #Russia of exploiting extremism & ultranationalism

"This far-right ultranationalism is in fact being cultivated as a tool of war" he said in a speech to the @OSCE Permanent Council in #Vienna
"The utter contempt shown by such large numbers of #Russia’s soldiers for the humanity of #Ukraine’s elderly, women, & children is the direct outcome of feeding its forces a pack of lies...&the inculcation of ultranationalist & dehumanizing ideas among its troops" per @USAmbOSCE
Extremist / Ultranationalist "ideology has long been propagated inside #Russia" per @USAmbOSCE

"The Kremlin’s ultranationalist agenda has also, at times, translated into support for neo-Nazi groups internationally aimed at destabilizing democratic countries"

The #Kremlin recently replaced the commander of the #VDV forces, may have fired the commander of the SMD, and appointed a new overall cmdr of #Russian forces in #Ukraine, indicating ongoing dysfunction in the Kremlin’s conduct of the war.

Meanwhile, Russian forces are successfully advancing toward #Lysychansk from the south rather than making an opposed river crossing from #Severodonetsk, threatening Ukrainian defenses in the area.
This Russian advance is a clear setback for Ukrainian defenses in the Severodonetsk-Lysychansk area, but Russian forces will likely require further protracted battles with Ukrainian forces similar to the block-by-block fighting in Mariupol and Severodonetsk to capture Lysychansk.

• Belarusian troop move toward #Ukraine

#Russia blames sanctions for world food crisis
• Russia attempts to limit #VPN's and #Tor 🧵⬇️: atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/new-atla…
@NATO In May, Belarusian President #Lukashenka ordered the creation of a military command center in southern #Belarus on #Ukraine's border. On June 2, videos of Belarusian equipment, including anti-aircraft missiles, being transported via rail appeared online.
@NATO Veterans Today, a US-based site known to circulate antisemitic and conspiratorial content, published an article implying NATO officers were killed in #Mariupol. Pro-Kremlin media outlets in Russia quickly amplified the article from which it spread on #Telegram.

The rivalry between the #Kremlin "towers" is becoming more and more active in the information space. The "rat race" between Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin and First Deputy Chairman of the Senat Andrei Turchak is a vivid example of this
1/8
Volodin and Turchak are both members of "United #Russia", and although the disagreements between them are not connected to any internal party split, the ruling party will bear the negative consequences of these conflicts, which will not strengthen it
2/8
That's why, #Putin's inner circle has again started talking about the need for a consensual figure for the elites in the leadership of "United #Russia", who would unite and guarantee the current status quo and the continuity of power

#Putin's decision to facilitate the issuance of Russian passports in #Kherson & #Zaporizhzhya regions of #Ukraine isn't spontaneous. This decision has been on the table for at least 2 months and has been transformed & postponed given the objective situation on the front
1/10
Moreover, #Putin's plans for the annexation of several regions of #Ukraine to #Russia are a resolved matter and these plans are constantly discussed at closed-door meetings in various formats with the participation of the President

Now the main goal #Putin has set for the military is to reach the admin borders of #Donetsk & #Luhansk regions and, if possible, #Kherson & #Zaporizhzhya regions of Ukraine

Ousting Putin..
Ousting Putin will be no easy task as there are not that many ways to oust him as I will present here..
1. There is of course the possibility he could be taken out by an assassin but as I know from personal experience with colleagues who worked security detail Image
for previous Presidents, Putin's close protection team are well equipped with latest equipment that even discovers shooters from some distance away so I don't actually see assassination as a viable alternative. His Aurus car is well protected as well and larger than Biden's Beast Image
So we move on..
2. Military coup remains doubtful in my opinion due to the vastness of the country and the coordination required across the country to set the wheels of a military coup in motion. It is a different matter in smaller countries like back in 1989 when I witnessed

Former KGB, FSB, GRU agents/officers and how the West has a tendency to see them.
With my 45 years experience of working with the Russians, their security services and in 90s and early 2000s with security detail for the extremely wealthy Russian elite Image
I deem myself experienced enough to express my opinion about the topic here...
What we in the west often do is as soon as a former agent but preferably officer makes themselves known to us we put them on a pedestal and take their words for gospel. Image
I have met so many Russian security agents/officers over the years both when I have been questioned by them in USSR/Russia and when I have met former agents/officers and a vast majority of them are simply cogs in a massive wheel working on pretty mundane assignments and very,very

🇬🇪I try not to react to #Georgia-n politicians’ tasteless & baseless attacks but now I was left no choice.

I met Ms #Tsulukiani when she was a young, aspiring politician & a lawyer. Sad to see how she radicalised over the years & is now spreading lies & disinformation.
2/7
Ms #Tsulukiani knows best that I was & am one of the biggest critics of #Saakashvili’s regime & fought for the right of 🇬🇪 people to democratically elect their government. Accusing me of colluding with #UNM is a deliberate lie that no reasonably thinking person will believe.

#GD’s disinformation is reaching the #Kremlin’s level. GD is not #Georgia, criticizing GD is not the same as criticizing 🇬🇪. This is why I call myself a Friend of Georgia, not a “Friend of GD”. Stop hiding behind the country’s good name. Take responsibility for YOUR failures.

On May 11, Ukrainian forces successfully destroyed a Russian unit trying to cross the strategically important river of Siversky Donets in the #Donbas region. @DFRLab confirmed the genuine nature of the @DefenceU’s photos.
@DefenceU In one estimation, #Ukraine destroyed a Russian pontoon bridge and least 6 tanks, 14 BMP armored vehicles, 7 MT-LB amphibious vehicles, a tugboat and 5 other armored vehicles. A separate calculation by @Blue_Sauron showed 73 pieces of Russian equipment destroyed or abandoned.

Dear #Ukrainians!

Many of our fellow citizens consciously or subconsciously perceived May 9 as a kind of rubicon. After all, the #Kremlin has repeatedly demonstrated a thirst for deluded symbolism.

The information space was full of expectations that something "special" would happen before or directly on this day. Such that will determine the course of the war or give a clue as to the time of its end.

That day is over. Many people are now a little confused and ask - what's next? What to expect? How to plan your life?
To begin with, I will focus on what happened in the last 78 days of the war, which began more than 8 years ago.
